q
=> 8 + 2 n/15 = P
q
=> 2n/15 = ^ - 8

^ - * i r
=> N/l5 = rational
Which contradicts the fact that ,N/i5 is irrational. Hence, (*J3 + V5)2 is irrational.

Case - II Increased length = x + 3
Increased breadth = y + 2
Increased area = (x + 3) (y + 2) square units
Increase in area = 79 square units
Increased area - Original area = 79 square units
(x + 3) (y + 2) - xy = 79
xy + 3y + 2x + 6 - xy = 79
2x + 3y = 73 ... (ii)
Now, subtracting (i) from (ii), we have

Which contradicts that p and q are co-prime.
Hence, ^/5 is an irrational number.
Sol. 14. Here, a and P are the zeroes of x2 - 6x + k
=> a + P = 6 and ap = k P= 6- a
Also, 3a + 2p = 20
3a + 2(6 - a) = 20
3a + 12 - 2a = 20 a = 8
Now, a + p= 6 P = 6 -a = 6 -8 =
Again, ap = k => k= (8) (- 2) = - 16
Sol. 15. Let monthly incomes of two persons be llx and 7x.
Let their monthly expenditures be 9y and 5y.
According to the statement of the question, we have
l l x - 9y = 400 (0
7x - 5y = 400
Multiplying (i) by 7 and (ii) by 11 and subtracting, we obtain
7(1 lx - 9y) - ll(7 x - 5y) = 7 x 400 - l l x 400
l l x - 63y - l l x + 55y = 2800 - 4400
- 8y = - 1600
=> y = 200
From (i), we have
l l x - 9(200) = 400
l l x = 400 + 1800
2200
x= = 200

Hence, their monthly incomes are ? 2200 and ? 1400.

Sol. 16. Let present age of daughter Nisha be x years.
Present age of Asha = (x2 + 2) years.
Now, when Nisha grows to her mother’s present age, then her age would be (x2 + 2) years.
Then, her mother’s age would bexz + 2 + xz + 2 - x i.e., 2X2 - x + 4
Now, as per statement of the question, we obtain
2X2 - x + 4 = lOx - 1
=> 2X2 - llx + 5 = 0
=> (x - 5) (2x - 1) = 0
=> Either x -5 = 0 or 2 x -l = 0

=> x= 5 or X = \ (^eject*nS)
Hence, present age of Nisha is 5 years and her mother’s age is 52 + 2 i.e., 27 years.

=> x2 - 14x + 49 + 16 = 20
=> x2 - 14x + 45 = 0
=> (x - 9) (x - 5) = 0
=> Either x- 9= 0 or x- 5= 0
=> x= 9 or x= 5
Hence, the required points are (9, 0) and (5, 0). Two points are there.
Sol. 18. Since tangents to a circle is perpendicular to the radius through the point.
ZORD = ZOSD = 90°
It is given that ZD = 90°. Also, OR = OS. Therefore, ORDS is a square.
Since tangents from an exterior point of a circle are equal in length.
BP = BQ
CQ = CR
and DR = DS
Now, BP = BQ
=> BQ = 27 [■•BP = 27 cm (given)]
=> BC - CQ = 27
=> 38 - CQ = 27 [ v BC = 38 cm]
=> CQ = 11 cm [ v CR = CQ]
=> CR = 11 cm
=> C D -D R = 11
=> 25 - DR = 11 [ v CD = 25 cm]
=> DR = 14 cm
But ORDS is a square. Therefore, OR = DR = 14 cm.
Hence, r = 14 cm.

Sol. 25. Given : A AABC, in which AD, BE and CF are three medians.
To Prove : 3(AB2 + BC2 + CA2) = ^AD 2 + BE2 + CF2)
Proof : Since in any triangle, the sum of the squares of any
two sides is equal to twice the square of the third side
together with twice the square of the median bisecting it,
we have
AB2 + AC2 = 2(AD2 + BD2)

1 2
AB2 + AC2 = 2 AD2 + | B C

=> AB2 + AC2 = 2AD2 + - BC2 ... (i)

Similarly, by taking BE and CF as the medians respectively, we have

BC2 + AB2 = 2BE2 + | AC2 ...(H)

and BC2 + AC2 = 2CF2 + | a B2 ... (iii)

Adding (i), (ii) and (iii), we have

2AB2 + 2AC2 + 2BC2 = 2AD2 + 2BE2 + 2CF2 + | (BC2 + AC2 + AB2)

=* 2(AB2 + AC2 + BC2) = 4(AD2 + BE2 + CF2)2+(BC2 + AC2 + AB2)

=> 4(AB2 + AC2 + BC2) - (BC2 + AC2 + AB2) = 4(AD2 + BE2 + CF2)

Let a, a + 1 and a + 2 be any three consecutive integers.
Case I : Let a = 3q
a(a + 1) (a + 2) = 3q (3q + 1) (3q + 2)
= 3q (even integer) (3q + 2)

Case II : Let a = 3q + 1
a(a + 1) (a + 2) = (3q + 1) (3q + 2) (3q + 3)
= (even integer) (3q + 2) 3(q + 1)

Case III : Let a = 3q + 2
a(a +1) (a + 2) = (3q + 2) (3q + 3) (3q + 4)

Thus, the product of three consecutive positive integers is divisible by 6.
Now, n3 - n = n(n2 - 1) = n(n - 1) (n + 1)

In this case, we have
n2 —i = (4q + l )2 - 1
= 16q2 + 1 + 8q - 1 = 16q2 + 8q = 8q(2q + 1 )
Which is divisible by 8.
=> n2 - 1 is divisible by 8.
Case-II : When n = 4q + 3
In this case, we have
n 2 _ 1 = (4q + 3)2 - 1
= 16q2 + 9 + 24q - 1
= 16q2 + 24q + 8
= 8(8q2 + 3q + 1)

Z1 = Z2 - (0
Similarly, Z4 = Z3

Adding (i), (ii), (Hi) and (iv), we have
Z1 + Z4 + Z5 + Z 8 = Z2 + Z3 + Z 6 + Z7
(Z1 + Z 8) + (Z4 + Z5) = (Z2 + Z3) + (Z 6 + Z7)
ZAOD + ZBOC = ZAOB + ZCOD ... (v)
Also, Z1 + Z2 + Z3 + Z4 + Z5 + Z 6 + Z7 + Z 8 = 360°
Z1 + Z1 + Z4 + Z4 + Z5 + Z5 + Z 8 + Z 8 = 360°
Z1 + Z4 + Z5 + Z 8 = 180°
(Z1 + Z 8) + (Z4 + Z5) = 180°

Sol. 24. Let the cost price of a memento be ? x and cost price of a trophy be ? y.
According to the statement of the question, we have
8x + 5y = 1300 ...(0
And 5x + 8y = 1612 - (ii)

Adding (i) and (ii), we obtain


13x + 13y = 2912
or x + y = 224 ...(iii)
Subtracting (ii) from (i), we obtain
3x - 3y = - 312
or x - y = - 104 ■■■{iv)
Adding (iii) and (iv), we have
2x = 120
=> x = 60
From (iii), we have
60 + y = 224
=> y = 224 - 60 = 164
Hence, the cost price of a memento is ? 60 and the cost price of a trophy is ? 164.

Sol. 7. Since 867 > 255, so we start with 867 as dividend and 255 as divisor, we have
867 = 255 x 3 + 102
Now, 102 is the remainder, which is not zero, so we again apply Euclid’s Division Algorithm to
255 and 102, we have
255 = 102 x 2 + 51
Again, the remainder 51 is not zero, so we once again apply Euclid’s Division Algorithm to
102 and 51, we have
102 = 51 x 2 + 0
Now, the remainder has become zero and 51 is the divisor.
Hence, the HCF of 867 and 255 is 51.
Sol. 8. For infinite number of solutions, we have

stone, drops it and goes to (n - l)th stone on


left, picks it up, goes to the mid-stone and drops it. This process is repeated till he collects all
stones on the left of the mid-stone at the mid-stone. So, distance covered in collecting stones
on the left of the mid-stones is
10 x n + 2[10 x (n - 1) + 10 x (n - 2) + ... + 10 x 2 + 10 x 1]
After collecting all stones on left of the mid-stone the man goes to the stone B on the right
side of the mid-stone, picks it up, goes to the mid-stone and drops it. Then, he goes to
(n - 1)* stone on the right and the process is repeated till to collects all stones at the mid-stone.
Distance covered in collecting the stones on the right side of the mid-stone
= 2[10 x n + 10 x (n-1) + 10 x (n-2 ) + ... + 10 x 2 + 10 x 1]
.•. Total distance covered = 10 x n + 2[10 x (n - 1) + 10 x (n - 2) + ... + 10 x 2 + 10 x 1]

Sol. 9. Given that P(x, y) is equidistant from A(a - b, a + b) and B(a + b, b a ).

i.e., |AP | = |BP |

=> ^ / {x -(a -b )}2 + {y - (a + b)}2 = <J{x-(a + b)}2 + {y - ( b - a ) }2


Squaring both sides, we have
=> x2 + a2 + b2 - 2xa - 2ab + 2xb + y2 + a2 + b2- 2ya + 2ab - 2yb
= x2 + a2 + b2 - 2xa + 2ab - 2xb + y2 + b2+ a2 - 2yb - 2ab + 2ya

Sol. 13. Since 210 > 55, therefore, 210 is dividend and 55 is the divisor.
210 = 3 x 55 + 45 - (0
55 = 1 x 45 + 10 - (n)
45 = 4 x 10 + 5 ... (Hi)
10 = 2 x 5 + 0 ...(iv)
Since remainder becomes zero, there divisor 5 is the required HCF of 210 and 55.
Now, 210x + 55y = 5
From (in), we obtain
5 = 45 - 10 x 4
5 = 45 - (55 - 45) x 4 [using (ii)]
5 = 45 - 55 x 4 + 45 x 4
5 = 45 x 5 - 55 x 4
5 = (210 - 3 x 55) x 5 - 55 x 4 [using (i)]
5 = 210 x 5 - 15 x 55 - 55 x 4
5 = 210 x 5 - 19 x 55
Hence, x = 5 and y = - 19.

X= ^2b =
From eqn. (ii), we have
(a + b) (a + b) + (a + b)y = a2 + b2
a2 + b2 + 2ab + (a + b)y = a2 + b2
(a + b)y = - 2ab

x2 + 600x - 500x - 300000 = 0
(x + 600) (x - 500) = 0
=> x + 600 = 0 or x - 500 = 0
=> x = - 600 or x = 500
Rejecting - ve value, because speed can’t be - ve, we have x 500
Hence, the original speed of the plane is 500 km/h.

Sol. 17. Coordinates of A, B and C are A( - 3, 10), B( - 1, 6) and C(6, - 8).

Now, AB = ^ (- l + 3)2 + (6-10)2

B C = J(6 + l)2 + (-8 -6 )2

Sol. 18. Given : A circle C(0, r) with centre O. Through the external point P tangents PT and PT' are
drawn.
To Prove : PT = PT'
Const. : Join PO, TO and T'O.
Proof : In rt. Zed APTO and APT'O, we have
TO = T'O = r
hypt. PO = hypt. PO [common]
ZPTO = ZPT'O = 90°
APTO = APT'O [by RHS congruency axiom]
=> PT = PT' [c.p.c.t.]
Let OP intersect AB at a point C. Here, PA and PB are the two tangents from a point P lying
outside the circle, to the circle with centre O.
ZAPO = ZBPO [ v O lies on the bisector of ZAPB]
Now, in AACP and ABCP we have
AP = BP [tangents from an external point]
P C = PC [common]
ZAPO = ZBPO [proved above]
=> AACP = ABCP [by SAS congruence axiom]
=> A C = BC [c.p.c.t.]
and ZACP = ZBCP
